7:01 am
but we begin this morning with today's oip,"eye opener" your world in 90 seconds. >> it's going to be crazy. >> i'm going to the liquor store. >> the northeast braces for a storm. >> it's slammed the northwest but it's about to get a lot worse. >> the product of two converging weather systems, coming together producing as much as 3 inches of snow an hour. >> packing blizzard-speed winds. airlines have already canceled thousands of flights. >> you have a trained former officer hunting other officers. >> christopher dorner a cop killer with a grudge. >> word that the suspect may have been spotted. >> his burned out pickup truck has been found in big bare. >> police are searching door to door. >> this has gone far enough you know. nobody else needs to die. boeing's dreamliner returns
7:02 am
to the skies but only for tift runs. >> a criminal investigation is under way to find out who's responsible for hacking the e-mails of the bush family. >> all that -- >> marc staal came over and apologized. i literally kept my eye on the puck there, i'll tell you that. >> you have an offensive coordinator, a defensive coordinator. right. >> what do you do. >> -- and all that matters -- >> will go into effect at noontime. stay off the streets of our city. basically stay home. >> the good news, i guess if you like snow, is that we're going to have some. >> -- on "cbs this morning." >> worst history will be boston which is expected five-foot snow drifts. my god, if that happens to new york, we won't find our mayor till spring. captioning funded by cbs
7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose is off. anthony mason is with us. a potentially record-breaking blizzard is ready to slam the northeast this morning. >> one part of the system is coming in from the midwest. blizzard warnings are posted from new york to boston with up to 2 feet of snow forecast and damaging winds. the worst is expected to hit tonight and continue into tomorrow morning. >> we're covering all angles of the blizzard from the storm's path to those travel headaches and we start with seth doane in new york city. seth already some snowflakes. >> reporter: that's right, norah. good morning to you. we're starting to see the first flakes falling here. the city is bracing for up to 2 foot of snow and up to 50 to 60-mile-an-hour wind gusts which could complicate removing some of that snow. the city is standing by with some 250,000 tons of salt.
7:04 am
some of that you can see behind me in this salt depot. they'll be spreading it on the road with 365 salt spreaders. the mayor is not taking any chances with this storm after so much criticism after the snow blizzard of 2010 where some remained snowbound for days. also concerning with this storm is a storm surge. expecting 3 to 5 feet in some areas. that in and of itself is not particularly significant but in areas of queens brooklyn long island that received so much damage after storm sandy, those coastal defenses are down and there's a concern that even a smaller storm surge could cause some localized flooding. there is a bit of good news in all of this, which is the bulk of the storm is supposed to hit later into friday and saturday morning, so hopefully there'll be fewer people on the roads. >> seth doane. thank you. and from new york to boston the travel nightmare has already
7:05 am
begun with thousands of flights canceled. starting this afternoon, all flights, that's right, all flights in and oust boston logan's airport are grounded. that affects flights all across the country. terrell brown is at logan. terrell, good morning. >> reporter: norah, good morning to you. almost 500 flights have been cancelled. there will be a ripple effect and there will be issues with air travel all around the country today. meanwhile amtrak suspending service in the northeast door that happen this afternoon. no trains from new york to boston and forecasters are calling the i-95 corridor today treacherous. forecasters are suggesting no travel once the snow starting falling. one of the common things we're hearing is the snow will fall quickly and get there fast. get to a safe place and stay there because you may have to be there for a long time. >> thank you, terrell.
7:06 am
cbs news david bernard is tracking the weather. david, what's the latest? >> the storm is taking shape this morning. let's go right to our radar. you can see the snow start form on the outers banks of north carolina. already rain spreading ahead of it. look at the forecast storm track. by 7:00 this evening a powerful low will be located just east of atlantic city. again, new york is going to be right on the edge of the rain/snow line but all areas will be experiencing very heavy snows and the blizzard will take shape. especially over southeastern new england and connecticut, that's when the worst of it will be. now look at this snow potential. this really hasn't changed all that much. the area where you could see two feet or more of snow is generally in this area here, but i'm keeping the line of more than a foot of snow all the way back into the new york city
7:07 am
area. it's how fast the rain/snow changeover occurs. we don't know just yet. >> david, i'm sorry to hear that. it's not just snow. it's going to be the wind. >> right. you have the accumulating snow but the blizzard hazards actually refer to visibility and winds. right now i think wind gusts of 60 will be common across parts of the northeast. wind gusts around 75 miles an hour. that's going to be power outages likely. and, again, near zero visibility is going to make travel just about impossible. look at the flood warnings from delaware to the jersey shore. if your local emergency management is telling you watch out, don't travel on certain roads, pay attention to what they're saying. >> david bernard, thank you. there are new developments in california where police may be closing in on a former police officer who's declared war on his own.
7:08 am
christopher dorner is accused of shooting two police officers yesterday in riverside, california, killing one of them. he was already wanted for killing a young couple. it stretches for hundreds of mimes across southern california, but this morning the focus is in big bare california, right outside of los angeles. benjamin is there. good morning. >> good morning, norah. they searched this area all through the night and still no sign of christopher dorner and the authorities do admit this could be an elaborate diversion or even a trap. when they assaulted on big bare mountain, california, authorities hoched they were hot on the trail of christopher dorner. 125 officers joined in the search following tracks from the burned out truck they say belonged to dorper. guiltiers had been combing the truck for clues as s.w.a.t.
7:09 am
teams went door to door. >> we're doing everything we can to attempt to find him. certainly he could be anywhere at this point. that's why we're searching door to door. more than a dozen local and state federal agencies joined in the manhunt after dorner shot four police officers in los angeles, killing one and wounding two others. >> this is a somewhat or unprecedented or very rare occurrence for us where you have a train and herbally armed person who is hunting for police officers. >> reporter: it appears to be revenge. 3-year-old christopher dorner was fired from the lapd in 2008 after filing a false brutality complaint against a fellow officer. he also has military training having served in the navy. >> of course we know what he's doing. we trained him. he's also a member of the armed forces. it is extremely worrisome and
7:10 am
scare, especially to the police officers involved. >> reporter: in a rambling manifesto on his facebook page dorner detwhals he sees as abuses in the police department and targets dozens of officers by name, writing i will bring unconventional and asymmetric cal ware far to those in lapd uniform whether on or off duty yo. i never had the opportunity to have a family of mine own. i'm terminates yours. >> i would tell him to turn himself in you know. this has gone far enough you know. nobody else needs to die. >> reporter: the weather up here, the snow the wind the temperature in the low 30s is definitely complicating their search efforts and keep in mind they're dealing with a guy who has well honed survivalist skills in serving time both in
7:11 am
the military and on the police force. >> bill bratton was serving as police chief while dorner was in the lapd. also joining us is john miller. good morning to you both. >> good morning. >> they found his truck. do we think that's going to take us any closer to him at this point? >> john and i were talking about that. our feeling is it's probably a diversion. 80 miles outside of l.a. and the latest news is he might be in san diego. so possibly a diversionary traffic to draw people into that area while he's actually heading south. >> how equipped is lapd to deal with something like this? >> well in this circumstance the lapd is superbly equipped for this in terms of they have the investigative capabilities and resources and the southern california police authority is incredibly well networked with each other.
7:12 am
each department works seamlessly with each other. so it's coordinated, sophisticated sophisticated, and as you've seener vrks comprehensive. >> we have a picture of you and christopher dorner together. do you remember him? >> i don't remember him but looking in the picture, he was in his military uniform. chances are this is when he was being deployed into the military bringing him up to my office, wish them well bring the families up to introduce them to our liaison officer and give them a good luck charm if you will as he went off. >> you mentioned his manifesto and cnn in which you were specifically referenced and there was a ceremonial coin with your name and it had three bullet holes in it. this is a picture courtesy of anderson 360. what do you think when you see that? >> it's pretty chilling the actual coin.
7:13 am
it's a custom that you give as a sign of respect. a good luck charm, parti for those going overseas so when you see that that coin that was given in friendship and respect, three bullet holes, very chilling. i'm actually surprised cnn did not move that to the police festivals when they received that. >> john what do you make of that when you sigh that evidence? we know what his motive is. he has a beef against the police didn't and that's why he's gone after police officers. >> what we're seeing is a remarkable amount of prestaging to put this on the map even before he would take the action to make news. what i'm thinking through this morning is with the bushing truck and what's setting the truck on fire on that mountain and drawing people to it someone who would put that much into pre-staging, it's doubtful they didn't put the same amount
7:14 am
into the endgame. so at this stage as we round third base, it makes you wonder what is his plan for the endgame. >> police officers are armed, at least most of them are. how do you protect the entire department? effect fivly the whole department is a target and innocent people have been killed here too. >> that's right. i spoke with police chief beck. so the police are certainly on edge in the sense that one of these assaults that killed the riverside police officer was totally unprovoked. pulls up alongside their car and with a semiautomatic rifle just starts shooting at them. this is an incredibly dangerous individual. we're very surprised that since he's now out there that hi's not sought the media to exploit it. it's interesting that he's
7:15 am
stayed quiet all this time. police trained, he's aware that anything he uses electronically can be traced. >> what's interesting is on january 31st he cut off all his cell phones and other connections. he erased his communications platform. that doesn't mean he doesn't have one. that probably means in his planning he got throwaway phones and other devices that aren't traceable to him. >> all right. >> that suggests a longer term strategy, doesn't it? >> it does. that's why i keep coming back to he has brought this to a certain pinnacle. it seemed like he's going to be moving however he wants this to wrap up and that could take a number o different forges. >> all right. bill bratton and john miller thank you. later we'll take a closer look at christopher dorner and his violent manifesto. on capitol hill yesterday, a surprise about the obama administration's response to syria's civil war. defense secretary leon panetta
7:16 am
revealed for the first time that president obama was the one who blocked a plan to arm rebel fighters in syria. the plan was developed last year by then cia director david petraeus and backed by penalty gone leaders and then secretary of state hillary clinton. the white house had doubts about which rebels could be trusted with the arms. those details came to light during the senate hearing on libya. they had tough questions for panetta. he related he and president obama spoke once during the eight-hour benghazi attack that left four americans dead. it also explained why war plains weren't sent. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, norah. panetta says the reason planes were not sent is because it came in two waves. after the first wave ended, they all thought it was over. plus, he said there wasn't enough actionable intelligence on the ground to act. >> you can't just willy nilly
7:17 am
send f-16s there and blow up the place without knowing what's taking place. >> they said they were aware in the months before the attack u.s. ambassador chris stevens was worried about safety in libya. >> we never received a request to do, so number one snopa any ta argued that benghazi was just one of many u.s. outposts receiving threats. >> u.s. military has neither the resources nor the responsibility to have a firehouse next to every u.s. facility in the world. >> the white house has provided few detailser the president's actions the night of the benghazi attacks. panetta revealed he briefed him of the attack but the two did not speak again that night.
7:18 am
>> are you surprised that the president of the united states didn't call you, defense secretary panetta, and say, how's it going? >> normally in these situations -- >> did he know the level of threat? >> let me finish the answer. we were deploying the forces. he knew we were deploying the forces. he was being kept -- >> i hate to interrupt you but we've got limited time. >> the president was well aware of what was going on. make no mistake about it. >> it's a sign that the president was disengaged. panetta says he and others were in touch but he did not speak with hillary clinton the night of the event either. the no, times says iran's preem leader rejects direct talks with the u.s. they say that's important

7:31 am
military from testing the next planes. they can be completely guided by computers, not people. david martin is in maryland to show us the latest technology. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i'm standing in front of a very large unmanned aircraft flown by the navy over the persian gulf. it flies at 60,000 feet and is designed only for surveillance but there are others which are designed to carry weapons. the x-47b is capable of carrying 4,000 pounds of weapons although right now it is only loaded with incenter umentes as it is launched from a land-based catapult. remember, there's no pilot on board with a stick and rutter. it's responding to a computer program. call it point-and-click flying. the x-47b is taking drone
7:32 am
warfare to a whole new level. >> the test went very well and it's very significant because this is the first time we're actually doing catapult shots with a vehicle with nobody in the cockpit. >> reporter: the x-47b has already conducted taxi tests aboard the "uss s sss truman" and later will take off andland from a u.s. aircraft carrier. it could be used for other missions like reconnaissance or air-jamming defenses, but it could also be armed. >> a plane like that one day could be used for edd for carrying weapons. >> yes. >> reporter: putting them aboard an aircraft carrier would give the navy the capability to launch strikes virtually anywhere in the world. >> the biggest thing is you don't have to worry about permission from other countries to operate a vehicle from
7:33 am
foreign airfields. >> reporter: that won't happen until 2017 but two of these unmanned aircraft are flying over the persian gulf today and have been for the past three years. >> david, what about the concerns that this is now war by remote control? >> reporter: well, the navy and all the military services say there is still a man in the loop. even with the x-47b, which you saw, which was responding to a computer program, there was someone in a trailer with a computer that could have taken over that flight or given it a new computer command. so they say it is a remotely piloted vehicle, not an unmanned vehicle. >> david martin. thanks, david. you can see david's whole report on "next gen drones" on cbs this

good morning, everybody. it is 8:00 a.m. welcome back to "cbs this morning." the blizzard could bring travel to a halt. flights are already being canceled but it's getting hotter in los angeles. gayle is in the staples center getting ready for the grammys sheechls got ll cool j, carly rae jepsen and more. but first here's this morning's "eye opener" at 8:00. millions are racing to stock up on supplies. a dangerous and potentially record-breaking blizzard is ready to slam the northeast this morning. >> nearly 500 flights have already been canceled here in boston, more than 1,800 in the new york area. >> the blizzard is going to take shape tonight. it's all dependent on how fast the rain/snow changeover occurs. >> christopher dorner a former police officer, has declared war
8:01 am
on his own. >> they're dealing with a guy who served both in the military and the police fofrs. >> the manhunt is under way, it's coordinated, sophisticated. >> reporter: i'm standing in front of a very large unmanned aircraft. >> the controversy of using drones isn't stopping the testing of next generation planes without a pilot. every football coach will tell you the same thing. you want to recruit a high school football star? then win over his mom sniet wasn't necessarily her grabbing papers and running outside. it was more her protecting me. >> blizzard warnings with up to 2 inches of snow forecasted for boston. >> up to 2 feet of snow or as subway calls it 1rks 1 inks. i'm norah o'donnell with gayle king and anthony mason. charlie rose is off.
8:02 am
blizzard warnings up for new york city and maine as a potential winter storm moves into the northeast. cbs news weather consultant david bernard is tracking the storm. all right, david. how bad is this storm going to be? >> it's going to be real bad in spots, norah, and maybe some will get off a little bit easier but it's way too soon. so we're all getting ready for this major storm. here we are this morning. the storm is taking shape on the outer banks of north carolina and thinking is this is going to continue to the northeast, paralleling the coast all day long. this takes us to 7:00 this evening. it's going to be real tricky as we've been saying. long, new england area when the rain/snow changeover will occur. it will have a lot to do with mouch we'll see. herb snow by tonight through tonight into tomorrow morning. the worst of it will be across southeastern new england by the time we get to that point in time. now, the snowfall potential, it still looks like this corridor running from southern new
8:03 am
hampshire and massachusetts through most of connecticut and rhode island. that's where the heaviest snow potential is. again, we are still looking for potentially significant snows as pfar west as new york city and further north, even albany is going to get a pretty good bout of snow with this as well. so we have blizzard conditions in spots developing later today and tonight. that mean wind gusts to near 60 miles an hour. hurricane force gusts near the coast. power outages and neerg zero visibility. that means travel is going to be really difficult and some spots coastal flooding is possible as well. new jersey is still recovering from superstorm sandy and now they face another potentialdy aster with this monster blizzard. seth doane with more. good morning. >> good morning, anthony. we're already starting to see flights canceled throughout the region as well. more than 3,000 flights have been canceled so far throughout the northeast. and amtrak is reducing its rail
8:04 am
service throughout the northeast door. we're under a blizzard warning in new york city expecting upwards of a foot of snow and 50 to 60-mile-per-hour winds which could make removing that snow even more difficult. as you move further north, boston is expecting upwards of 2 feet of snow. so it's been a busy morning this morning here at this salt depot in new york city. behind me you can see some of the 250,000 tons of salt new york has ready to spread on its roadways with 365 salt spreaders. we're also getting reports of long lines at gas stations at grocery stores as people start to prepare for this blizzard. anthony, gayle, norah? >> seth doane. thank you. more than 100 police officers are searching for a former police officer wanted for three killers.
8:05 am
yesterday in trying to stop christopher dorner they excellently shot and wounded two women delivering newspapers and they fired on a third person. bill whitaker is at police headquarters, good morning. >> good morning, norah. christopher dorner is on the run. in his rambling online manifesto, the subject of this massive manhunt said people who know him probably can't believe what they're seeing, hearing and reading in the media. his online diatribe is full of anger and threats but the 33-year-old ex-police officer start calmly addressing his friends. you are saying to yourself this is completely out of character of the man you knew who always wore a smile, he writes. >> that's what frankly makes this so bizarre. >> reporter: james usera played with him on the football field
8:06 am
and talked politics. >> i never saw any indications of him that he was violent or particularly aggressive. certainly not anything that would suggest to me he could, you know commit the crimes with which he's been accused. >> reporter: he remembers dorner as a good student who served his country. dorner writes he was proud to serve in the naval reserve, even prouder to become an officer with the lapd something he dreamed of since being an explorer scout in his teens. >> he just wanted to be an officer. >> aaron alford was dorner's high school football coach. he's kept in touch with him over the years. >> reporter: but during his three years with the lapd the man with the smile became angry and depressed. he accused a fellow officer of using excessive force. a review panel found he had lied. dorner was fired in 2008. in his manifesto he writes i stood up for what was right but
8:07 am
you did nothing but get rid of what you thought was a whistle blower. you're going to see what a whistle blower can do when you take everything from him including his name. he offered lavish praise to words of advice to everyone from football stall tim tebow to talk show host ellen degeneres. he adds he's turning his military and police training against those he says did him wrong. i will utilize every bit of small arms training demolition ordinance, and survival training i've been given. his friend james usera remembered one more thing, that dorner was very sensitive about anything he considered to be a racial slight, and in his manifesto dorner writes that he believes that race was a factor in how he was treated here at the lapd. when the truth comes out, the killing stops, he writes. unfortunately, he went on i will not live to see my name
8:08 am
cleared. norah, gayle anthony? >> bill whitaker thank you. john miller is with us. he's a former head of the crimes division of the lapd. john, good morning. what's going through the mind of a lot of these lapd officers more than a hundred now on this manhunt for christopher? >> i think you have different sets of officers. there are people mentioned in his manifesto who are thinking i can take care of myself. is my family safe. he's cross thad line that even criminals don't cross, which is going after the families of officers. and then there are the special teams that are after him. one is the sis, special investigation section. they're high-tech, surveillance heavy weapons and investigative unit, and this is the kind of case they would d deployed on, but they're looking at how do we take a guy who has promised to come at us with he used the term "violence of action" and turn that around and essentially
8:09 am
the only way to confront him in the street without that becoming a shoot-out that ends in his death is to do it with extraordinary speed and surprise. >> isn't it strange he mentioned so many people in the media including anderson cooper who he sent this coin and bullet holes in the coin? >> this is the coin that the chief gives out as a keepsake and what came to "acc 360" in duct tape is this coin. there was a note to bratton on it that said good morning. we have a interesting commute in fro gresz. -- progress. for the most part it is just rain.
8:10 am

"the wall street journal" says cheaper blends of coffee are getting more popular. bargain hunters in brazil are pushing for demand. the expense is down because of weak economies in the u.s. and europe. los angeles times is looking for the tallest buildings in the west. they're building the tallest skyscraper in downtown l.a. it will stand 73 stories tall and should be ready by 2017. and the "new york daily news" says seays there was a sticky situation for one airline passenger and now he's suing. frank hannible tried to take a

8:35 am
enjoy it. >> we talk to entrepreneurs and business leaders but so few are women. women in leadership positions. why do you think that is? >> i you know thing that's changing. you're starting to see a lot of mid -- the next generation of women leaders. i think it's been a convergence of women wanting to take their places leaving the home mothers. they end up in a position of conflict where they get to this point in their career where they love their job and they face the opportunity to move up but they're look at their families and i think now that -- i think things are changing and young women are learning how to balance that manage that, and companies are getting a lot more understanding and flexible of different family needs, whether it's a young woman looking to raise a family or a more tenured employee who now needs to raise their ailing parents. >> kat cole thank you.
